Replying to:  Which is better CDMA or GSM??? by fairplayinc   Oct 6, 2004, 10:15 AM

GSM IS ALSO SECURE, EVER HEARD OF IMEI!!

by renardlee    Jan 3, 2007, 12:11 AM

will people stop saying gsm is insecure because someone can pop in their sim card in use, incase any cdma fan does not know, GSM PHONES USE A IMEI NUMBER which is identified on the network soon as someone turns in the phone, if my GSM phone which i proudly use, is stolen i can call cingular and ask them to blacklist the IMEI number(i think they do it automatically if the phone is stolen or lost). BLocking the IMEI number effectively making the phone a paperweight, no sim card will get the phone to work at all.
